For the past three months, I have been running a robust social media marketing campaign for my Fiverr profile and Gigs. That includes 3 FB ads for three different Gigs, two posts daily to FB and Twitter, and posting in FB groups.
The result - Zero, none, nada, no, zilch, zip, 0 sales from this effort.
How do I know?
I have a question in my buyer requirements that ask how people found me. The three top answers:
A Fiverr search for keywords or by category
I sent them a buyer request response
Fiverr recommended me to them (You have seen this in an email from Fiverr or on the home page. Gigs they think you might like.)
One person found me through a Google search
The rest are repeat buyers
The takeaway: your 20% commission is going to work through Fiverr advertising to get your Gigs out there.
There are many factors on whether you get sales or not, including your Gig set up.
In my humble opinion, if you want a social media presence to look more professional or because you are a full-time legit business great. However, in my experience, the conversation from likes, shares, and post engagements do not convert to sales.
I hope some people find this useful. I am sure every seller has a different situation. I would be interested to hear how buyers find sellers.
